Federal and state agencies  for the Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group (TIG) have prepared a Draft Restoration Plan and Environmental Assessment #2. This draft 'describes and proposes restoration project alternatives considered by the Louisiana TIG to compensate for recreational use services lost as a result of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The Louisiana TIG evaluated these alternatives under criteria set forth in the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 natural resource damage assessment regulations, and also evaluated the environmental consequences of the restoration alternatives in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act.' This notice informs the public 'of the availability of the Draft' and calls for public comment on the Assessment.
